A group people referred to as “national security experts” have declared members of the Republican Party to be the same as terrorists.
The opinion, published in an essay in The Root, claimed the GOP behaves “like a terror group,” is rife with “terrorist sympathizers,” and should be viewed as “enemy combatants.”
The opinion is leveled against the GOP as a whole rather than against a small fringe subset within the group.
“[W]e have an entire political party that has converted into an authoritarian—albeit Americanized version—style of politics that cares nothing about U.S. democracy or anyone who is not white,” says the the essay.
NEW: National security experts told me the Republican Party is functioning like a terror cell. One said, "If they were in Afghanistan, we would’ve hit them. Either a raid, drop a bomb on them." Thanks @PamKeithFL, @_pamcampos, @KyleWBibby, @MalcolmNance. https://t.co/d7dBvffBx3
